'm going to start with you today because we see that stutter step opening in the u.s. stock market. some of that could be attributable, i guess, to the plunge in spanish ten-year yields when rumors got out that maybe spain was going to ask for a bailout from the ecb. while we obsess so much on the fiscal cliff, the markets are paying close attention to what's going on in europe, yes? >> oh, well, i don't disagree. nothing gets past you, bill. i think the fiscal cliff for lack of any tangible movement there is up and center. look at the chart bill is referring to. at one point, we were up eight basis points on the ten-year in spain. by the end of the session, down three. the following charts might put a better face on it. if to you open the chart up to about a month, you can see that rates for the most part were about a one-month high in spain. if you look at their safe harbor counterparts, the exact mirror image of lower rates. the rumor is, hey, if you build it, a bailout facility, they will come. spain may be on their way, but it's still only rumor at this point. >> steven, how much of

on the u.s. consulate itself. this caused major damage, but there was no significant security response and this is seen by the u.s. intelligence community as a testing or probing incident before the 9/11 at act itself. secondly how quickly did the u.s. intelligence community conclude what happened in benghazi was in an act of terrorism linked to al qaeda and a second group ansar al-sharia? how does that time frame match up with the administration's statements that it was in fact a demonstration that was spontaneous in response to the anti-islam video? and third, why was it that the state department denied repeated requests from ambassador stevens in benghazi along with his staff for additional security specifically, a classified briefing in august that determined the consulate could not withstand a coordinated attack from groups like al qaeda and as well as ansar al-sharia? for some context the people who are testifying today this is the top of the u.s. intelligence community as well as the law enforcement community. we have the director of national intelligence, the acting cia directo
